  • 1Description

  • Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens

    Boasting exceptional optics, a complete feature set, and outstanding speed in all aspects, the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens easily takes its place as the de facto telephoto zoom for professionals. A member of the G Master series, this 70-200mm delivers high sharpness alongside smooth, clean bokeh and with an absolute minimum of aberrations. This is guaranteed through the use of an XA element, two aspherical elements, four extra-low dispersion elements, and two Super ED elements in the optical design. Furthermore, the lens has a Nano AR Coating that reduces reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color.

    Optimized for speed, this lens is equipped with a fast and constant f/2.8 aperture that will be an asset in low-light conditions as well as for creating images with shallow depth of field. Bokeh is made even better by the implementation of an eleven-blade circular diaphragm for smooth out-of-focus areas. Also, there is a double-linear and ring Super Sonic wave Motor system that provides fast, responsive autofocus in both stills and video.

    As a top end telephoto zoom, this lens is equipped with a variety of other technologies to assist shooters, including Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for combating camera shake, especially at longer focal lengths. Users will enjoy faster and more intuitive operation with a plethora of physical controls on the lens barrel, including three focus hold buttons, a focus range limiter switch, and both AF/MF and OSS switches. For durability and working in tough conditions, the lens is dust and moisture resistant, and it has a fluorine coating on the front element to resist water and oil.

    As part of Sony's esteemed G Master series, this lens is designed to achieve notably high resolution and sharpness through the correction of a wide variety of spherical and chromatic aberrations. Additionally, these lenses feature robust and intuitive-to-handle physical designs to benefit both photography and cine applications.
    A popular telephoto zoom designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras, this 70-200mm lens is also compatible with APS-C models where it provides a 105-300mm equivalent focal length range.
    A constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also lends greater control over focus position for shallow depth of field techniques.
    Of the three aspherical elements incorporated in the lens design, one is an XA element with superior surface precision to effectively reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations from imagery.
    Four extra-low dispersion elements and two Super ED elements are featured in the lens design, too, and help to control chromatic aberrations and reduce color fringing for increased clarity and color fidelity.
    A Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
    An advanced double-linear and ring Super Sonic wave Motor system ensure fast, precise and accurate autofocus in both stills and video.
    Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds. This stabilization system can also be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur. An OSS Mode switch lets you choose Mode 1 for general image stabilization that is suited to most types of shooting as well as a Mode 2 setting that is specifically intended to be used with panning movements.
    A floating elements system benefits image quality when working at the 3.15' minimum focusing distance with 0.25x magnification.
    The lens barrel is equipped with three focus hold buttons and a focus range limiter switch to permit fast, intuitive operation of the lens while shooting.
    The front lens element features a fluorine coating to protect against smudges and dust from adhering to the glass surface.
    Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions.
    A rounded 11-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
    A removable, rotating tripod mount permits quick switching from horizontal to vertical shooting orientations.
    The included petal-shaped lens hood helps prevent flaring and has a filter access window for making adjustments to rotating filters such as polarizers and variable NDs.
    Compatible with Sony's optional 1.4x and 2x teleconverters, this lens can be easily transformed into a 98-280mm or 140-400mm optic, respectively.

Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 reviews

FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens with UV Filter Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than expected! Just used the Sony 70-200 Gmaster with the Sony A7RIII at a school play and the images are spectacular! Focusing worked fine even when things got darker. Yes, the lens is heavy but not a problem for me even though I am 73 years of age. This lens equals and maybe betters different prime lens I have had over the years. Hoping the lens remains trouble free for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My secret weapon. This photo uploaded was shot hand held with this lens. About 6ft from the model. Natural light. ISO 125 zoom at 131mm, f2.8, 1/200sec. Eye AF used. I this closeup was taken from the portrait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with this lens I paired this with my new A7RIII to shoot sports - the lens is a bit front heavy on this body so I needed to get the additional grip on the camera body to provide some stabilization when gripping this combo.� The lens itself is well made and sturdy - build is as good as my older Nikon 70-200 2.8. Optically the quality is superb and I have been very happy with the results I have got from the lens.� I like the little slider slot on the lens hood - great for adjusting something like a variable ND filter (if one is attached) while having the hood on. The hood also provides a nice clickable lock locking the hood into place when attached to the lens.� It comes with a lens case which is great for storing the lens when not in use.� All in all, I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Lens!! One word for this lens.... SHARP!!
Date published: 2018-06-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overpriced, but performs well on the A7III I’m a long time Canon shooter who has owned both the EF 70-200 2.8L IS Ver I and II and shot them on a variety of bodies including the 1D3, 5D3, and 7D2. Needless to say my expectations for such an expensive 70-200 as the Sony were pretty high, but if you’re going to be shooting sports with a Sony camera then it’s almost a requirement to have native mount lenses. That said, paired with my A7III the combo tracks very well and results in very crisp images. It rarely misses focus and seems at least as good as my 7D2, which also shoots at 10fps. I’ve compared images side by side and I honestly can’t really tell the difference between the Canon 70-200 2.8 IS II (which is very highly regarded) and this Sony... so it seems to perform really well, it’s too bad it’s almost ridiculously more expensive. The good: It’s sharp, has a fast f/2.8 aperture and performs well with quick AF and tracks well on my A7III. It has a removable tripod foot but there’s still a 1/4-20 thread on the lens itself for attaching something like a sling strap. The locking lens hood is nice and minimizes the chance you’ll lose it when walking around. It also has programmable buttons on the lens like Canon’s Supertelephotos, a nice touch. Dimension and weight-wise it’s nearly identical to the Canon, so if you’ve used a 70-200 2.8 before the feel will be familiar. The bad: Expensive! No way around it... the price tag is the biggest downside of this lens. The filter threads are plastic, really? Much of the rest of the lens is metal, and it’s built well... but I don’t think the build quite matches the Canon Ver II that I also own. The painted white lens hood will probably scratch up and look awful in a couple of years, and the little “filter adjustment” door made into the hood is fragile and easily broken (it was broken on a rental I used prior to purchase, and the rental employee commented that it’s a common problem). Other than that, there’s not much to complain about.
